Can anyone tell me if there was ever a character named goo?
What's on your mind?
I remember there was a episode with a girl who held and screamed of fear for a monster rabbit.
When I was in middle school in the early to mid 2000s, I remember on the MSN homepage was a Goosebumps scholastic page, and there was a competition on the page that was a couple of paragraphs that R.L. Stine wrote, and you got to finish the story and he would pick a winner to be featured on the page.
I remember there was one about a mysterious ice cream truck, and the winning entry was the kid bought ice cream for his brother, and his brother turned into this huge monster because of the ice cream. Does this sound familiar to anyone here? I'd love to read some of the old entries if they're anywhere online, and figured here would be a good place to start to see if anyone remembers this.
Excuse me but who is curly?

You see on another site named Character Stats and Wiki I am making whats called a cosmology thread. This question involves the thread.
So, I'm a collector of obscure editions of Goosebumps books. It wasn't until around last year where I came across a couple books from ebay that had some of the original Goosebumps books, only these had different isbn numbers and were thin printed. upon buying a couple I noticed something weird about them. They had no barcode on the back, nor was there a price. The spine of the book, which if there was an isbn number there would be 2 lines, it only had one line of text. All the books were first printing. the pages were smooth instead of the slight roughness of the original releases. and some (#44) only has the story itself, while others (#56) has the story, preview, and advertisements in the back. The lettering in the books are printed normal, not large or small printed as some might believe. I've searched everywhere in the books and they hold nothing that say it is a "special edition" "limited edition" "school market" I wanna say they might be review copies of the books, but i have a few newer uncorrected proof Goosebumps books and they have a page in there stating its an uncorrected proof.
If anyone knows anything about these books let me know
I've been editing a lot of the TV episode articles and have noticed that the plot sections of the articles are either stubs or copied from the related book pages. Is a plot section really necessary, though? In my opinion, all we really need is a link to the article which will already have a plot section on the related book and the "differences from the book" section. That's enough information. Writing plots for each article seems kind of pointless and laborious. Any opinions?
I thought there was a book in the original series where it changes character perspective in the middle of the book. I was pretty sure such a thing happened in Say Cheese and Die! or possibly its sequel, but I can't find any evidence of this. Am I going crazy?
Stine switches perspective in I Am Your Evil Twin, but I could'a sworn he did it somewhere else.
A friend of mine gave me a couple of DVDs which have the Shocker on Shock Street & Cry of the Cat.
Are these suitable for a 6 year old?
I know this was probably decided before I joined, but I want to put my two cents out there anyway. I think these two characters need separate pages.
Kris is the protagonist of Night of the Living Dummy. Lindy is the secondary protagonist in the second half of the book and a minor antagonist in the first 60%.
Even though the book is written in third person, it's third person LIMITED, from Kris's perspective. We explore Kris' jealousy of Lindy, and Kris' feelings about the living dummy. Kris brings Mr. Wood to life. Kris is terrorized by Mr. Wood. Lindy being terrorized by Mr. Wood in the end is similar to Sarah's sister being there at the end of Night of the Living Dummy 2. That doesn't make her a protagonist. Kris is the main character of this book.
Lindy is a minor antagonist because she bullies Kris by making her think the dummies are alive for more than 50% of the book (I think I was at 63% on my Kindle when Kris read the magic words to actually bring Mr. Wood alive -- the rest of the book was all Lindy).
The twins have different physical appearances, different personalities, and different roles. I think they need different pages on the Wiki.
I would be happy to create two separate pages for these characters (I enjoy writing about characters), but wanted to get permission/thoughts first.
I was wondering if you could answer a question of mine: If you join a wiki, and it appears in "my favorite wikis", but you delete it, is there any way to add it back? If you don't know the answer, its fine.
